Janis Ian Wins Grammy & the FLOTUS Tweets Her Congratulation
Very cool story -- who would have thought there would be one out of the Grammys? Of course, it's a story that wasn't part of the television broadcast.
Janis Ian was nominated in the Best Spoken Word category, for the audiobook of her autobiography. The other nominees were Bill Clinton, Michelle Obama, Ellen De Generes, and Rachel Maddow.
JI said, "It's like a joke waiting for a punchline: An ex-president, a First Lady, and three lesbians walk into a bar ...." So cool.
And then Michelle Obama tweeted Janis Ian congratulations. So very cool! And classy too.
